Yankees RP Andrew Bailey rejoins Class A Tampa on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/25/2015) Oft-injured reliever Andrew Bailey has been activated from the minor league disabled list, and has been assigned to the Yankees Class A team in Tampa, according to the Journal News. Bailey hasn't thrown a big-league pitch since 2013, and underwent shoulder surgery this past offseason.

The right-hander started the season with Class A Tampa, but hasn't pitched since the end of April after surffering a shoulder strain. There has been no indication of when Bailey might be called up to the Major Leagues.


GM: Yankees RP Andrew Bailey throws in extended ST game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2015) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has revealed that reliever Andrew Bailey, who has been struggling in his rehab from shoulder surgery since undergoing the procedure during the offseason, threw in a game setting during extended spring training Wednesday, per NJ.com.

Bailey, who has not pitched in the majors since 2013, tore his labrum and capsule in the shoulder that year. He appeared to be a possibility to make the Yankees roster this season, but the team wanted assurance that he could pitch in back-to-back games before calling him up.

He pitched in six games for Triple-A Scranton this April before going down again.


Yankees RP Andrew Bailey ready to restart throwing program


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Yankees reliever Andrew Bailey will restart his throwing program in the next few days, general manager Brian Cashman told NJ.com on Thursday. Bailey will report to extended spring training after being shut down two weeks ago due to a right shoulder strain.

Bailey complained of right shoulder pain following consecutive outings with Class A Tampa. An MRI revealed the shoulder strain, which Cashman said the team believes is related to the shoulder injury that has kept Bailey out of action since 2013.

Bailey had surgery to repair tears in his labrum and capsule.

"He's trying to do almost the impossible," Cashman said of Bailey's comeback effort.


Yankees' Bailey back in extended spring due to shoulder strain


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The 30-year-old reliever has an opt-out clause in his contract, but it appears he won't activate it since he is injured.


Andrew Bailey still hasn't pitched back-to-back in Yankees' minors


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Yankees pitcher Andrew Bailey , coming back from shoulder surgery, opened the season at Class-A Tampa. He still hasn't been able to pitch on back-to-back days, which manager Joe Girardi said was necessary before he was an option for the Major League roster. 

"I think the important thing that we said was that he is able to go back to back, just continue to build arm strength," Girardi said, per the Journal News. "I think after that you could really consider it."

Bailey allowed two runs in one inning, on two hits and a walk, in his only appearance so far for Tampa. 


Yankees P Andrew Bailey allows 3 runs in loss to Nationals


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Yankees pitcher Andrew Bailey gave up three earned runs in only two-thirds of an inning during Friday afternoon's 8-2 loss to the Nationals. 

Bailey entered the game in the seventh and struck out his first two batters. After walking Matt den Dekker, which was followed with den Dekker stealing second, Josh Johnson hit an RBI single to score the recently-signed National. 

Bailey was taken out of the game after walking Derrick Robinson in the next at-bat. Yankees pitcher Nick Goody came in and did Bailey no favors by giving up a three-run home run to Mike Carp. Bailey was credited for the runs scored by Johnson and Robinson. 

These were the first three earned runs Bailey allowed this spring.

Yankees' Andrew Bailey must pitch back-to-back days to make roster


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Yankees pitcher Andrew Bailey is still working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery. Bailey has pitched four innings this spring without giving up an earned run and just three hits.

But for Bailey to make the Opening Day roster, manager Joe Girardi wants to see Bailey pitch on back-to-back days, reports The Journal News.

"I don't see how you could do that," Girardi said. "And the one thing is, we're not going to rush him. I think it comes down to who we think is going to help us the most is the bottom line. I don't think you necessarily in your mind say (for example) I have to have a third lefty. Is it a luxury, sure it is, but I think it's who we think is going to help us the most."


Yankees P Andrew Bailey comfortable in debut


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Yankees pitcher Andrew Bailey made his debut Wednesday after not being on the mound for 19 months, per MLB.com. The right-hander underwent shoulder surgery in 2013.

"I actually felt comfortable out there, which is great," said Bailey, who last pitched in a Major League game on July 12, 2013. "I was pumped up. I was excited. The ball was coming out good and it was a lot of fun."

In one inning pitched he allowed one unearned run on three hits. 


Andrew Bailey: Never thought my arm would feel this good again


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Yankees pitcher Andrew Bailey, who has not pitched in the majors since 2013 and is attempting to come back from a shoulder injury, said he never thought his arm would feel this good again, according to NJ.com.

Bailey is expected to appear in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves. It will be the first time he has faced live hitters since July 12, 2013. Manager Joe Girardi told the paper that he'd like to see Bailey pitch out of the bullpen on back-to-back days before he can consider him a candidate to crack the big-league roster.

"The way the shoulder is, it's pretty complicated," Bailey said Wednesday. "And you're like, Is it ever going to happen? But the doctor said 18 to 24 months and we're in month 19, so pretty much right on track."


Yankees' Cashman downplays Bailey's chances of making team


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman downplayed reliever Andrew Bailey's chances of making the 25-man roster, according to the Journal News.

Bailey, 30, is attempting to come back from a shoulder injury. He has not pitched in the majors since 2013 due to the issue. While Bailey has been able to participate in bullpen sessions this spring, Cashman took a more realistic view of the situation. "It’s one of those things where, non-roster situation, it’s a flyer, and the odds are against it," Cashman said. "And it didn’t work out for us last year. But because of who he is, his makeup, his work ethic, all those things, it made it easier to say, 'All right, let's keep trying,'" he added. 

Cashman stressed that while things look good now, the team wants to see how Bailey will respond in game situations. Bailey, meanwhile, has been optimistic during camp, saying he feels like he's finally over his injury.

Bailey posted a 3.77 ERA over 28 2/3 innings back in 2013. 


Yankees' Andrew Bailey: 'I feel fresh and ready to go'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Yankees pitcher Andrew Bailey no longer feels like a rehab pitcher, but rather a legitimate reliever trying to make a big-league roster, The Journal News reports.

"One hundred percent," Bailey said. "I came in and spent the offseason training, working as I would if I played last year. The doctor gave me 18, 24 months (to be healthy after surgery), and we’re in that 18th, 19th month. Everyone around here, training staff, coaches and strength and conditioning have all kind of (treated it as if) I’m a normal guy with some needs. Hopefully we get rid of those needs. Everything feels great. I’m with the team and doing everything as I would normally, and if I need a little extra work here or there, that’s fine too. I’m here to compete and earn a spot."

Bailey has thrown five bullpen sessions since reporting to Tampa and threw Tuesday in a session that impressed manager Joe Girardi.

"I thought today he looked pretty good, actually," Joe Girardi said. "I talked to Gil Patterson about it. Compared to where he was last year to where he is (now), there’s significant improvement. I don’t know exactly what we’ll see as far as games, and his bullpens are a little more spread out than maybe some of the other relievers, but that’s on purpose right now, and our hope is that we can catch him up and keep him healthy."

Bailey missed the entire 2014 season after going 3-1 with a 3.77 ERA and 39:12 K:BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings with Boston.

“To feel as good as I do and locate as well as I have been, it’s a pretty awesome feeling,” Bailey said. “I feel fresh and ready to go, and excited for the next step.”
